Powder -Christian Dior - Diorskin Nude Fresh Glow Makeup
scarlett1975 9/9/2009 6:36:00 PM
Ok,i bought this a couple of days ago because i used Diorskin Forever compact makeup and felt weird lately(cakey,not very matte,needed to aply a couple of layers to cover imperfections and it looked cakey about 6 hours later). So,since i read reviews here about how wonderful this mineral foundation was for sensitive skin i decided to give it a chance and GLAD I DID!. It trully feels fresh when you aply it on your face.Another MUAer said,it was like putting water on your face:true!. Coverage it,s so so so so buildable.Some people said it didn,t cover anything,but in my opinion that,s not true.It depends on how much product you use,and i found out it doesn,t look heavy or cakey if you put two layers on(using MAC skunk brush=187). It,s soooooooooooooo extremelly fine and soft!!!!.I have some freckles,sun spots and redness on cheeks and i just used sunscreen and this the last two days and i found it good(if you want to completely mask ALL your imperfections like you have porcelaine skin,maybe this is not your foundation).I could still slightly see some imperfections,but it doesn,t bother me at all. Overall,it looked even and soft with a nice colour(i bought shade 30 because i,m still tanned from summer,i think shade 20 would look lovely in winter). MOST IMPORTANT! IT DOESN,T DRY ME OUT!.Previous Diorskin Forever compact was good,but i found it a bit cakey and dry.This new mineral foundation is soft,fresh,LONG LASTING!(i thought it wouldn,t last since it,s just a powder) and IT DOESN,T SETTLE ON LINES. Expensive:yes.Worth it?:YES! I,m aging ladies!.I feel my skin doesn,t like a lot of products out there and can,t stand liquid foundations,so this is like a miracle for me.Will buy forever!
This is a very good compact foundation and obviously less shiny than the old version,wich i also loved.It does not cover imperfections at all,it has a translucent coverage,not bad,but i wish it would completely mask my blemishes.Anyway,the finish is very matte and very good,maybe not suitable for dry skins. I like that it,s way more matte than the old diorskin,but i also find it a little bit dry,not shinny at all and very resistant to sweat and humidity. I will repurchase dispite the outrageous price if it goes on working on my sensitive skin.Best compact foundation i have found so far besides the disappeared Sisley botanical compact foundation.
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Juicy tubes Plump in Suggestive strawberry

First of all,this is a review for the JT called in USA Suggestive Strawberry(Strawberry sorbet in Europe).Colour is a hot pink,kind of reddish,with slight iridiscent,but on lips it,s not very visible.Also it goes on sheer,not as bold as colour suggest,but as all JTs it,s very very shinny.So you get a sheer pink pout,ultrashinny,very girly and natural,but not what i expected. Finally,this JT is not as sticky as previous ones!!!!!.I LOVE STICKINESS AND THIS IS NOT!.It does look thick,but it feels lighter than other regular Juicy tubes,so a lot of you girls will love these new Plumps,just not me. I,m really tempted to get the Coconut one because of the smell,and maybe the Caramel one,but i,m afraid they will be also very sheer and not sticky...so what,s the point?
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Juicy Plump - Strawberry Sorbet

I agree with previous MUAer,this is a little bit disappointing.First of all,this is a review for the JT called in USA Suggestive Strawberry(Strawberry sorbet in Europe).Colour is a hot pink,kind of reddish,with slight iridiscent,but on lips it,s not very visible.Also it goes on sheer,not as bold as colour suggest,but as all JTs it,s very very shinny.So you get a sheer pink pout,ultrashinny,very girly and natural,but not what i expected. Finally,this JT is not as sticky as previous ones!!!!!.I LOVE STICKINESS AND THIS IS NOT!.It does look thick,but it feels lighter than other regular Juicy tubes,so a lot of you girls will love these new Plumps,just not me. As Aleta bahie said,i,m really tempted to get the Coconut one because of the smell,and maybe the Caramel one,but i,m afraid they will be also very sheer and not sticky...so what,s the point?
I got this today and i must say i LOVE IT!.It,s a pink-peachy-nude,very light but not that much to make me look washed out.It,s amazing,it defines my lips without leaving a visible line.All my nudes will look great now!.I can also wear it on its own and still looks so extremelly natural.I can,t believe i found this liner,it,s HG material for me.
This is a pretty pink-coral with moderate shine and creamy texture.It brightens my face,but i would prefer it to be on the sticky side,like Babe or Scandal with ultrashine,so i stick to my Mac Lychee luxe lipglass.The pro is that it moisturize lips and leaves a nice stain when it fades.
I took one lippie off because it doesn,t stay for long,but besides that it,s the most beautiful pinky nude i have ever seen.Most nudes wash me out,but not this one,it makes me look natural and fresh,with moderate shine and no sparkles or anything.It would be my perfect nude if it stayed longer on lips.
This is the warm sister of Scandal lipgloss.Tomate red,really summery and sexy shade.It applies sheer,supershinny and with extreme lasting power.It makes my face alive in a second paired with Exhibit A blush or even with Taos,Cactus flower or just bronzer.Love it!!
Best cool red around!.I,m a fan of red lips and have tried several,most of them high end,but i have never had such a beautiful cherry red as this one.It applies sheer and supershinny,with extreme lasting power.I can wear it even in the morning because you can make it softer or more dramatic for night,but it will never look overdone or too much.Love it!!
Lip Gloss -Guerlain - Divinora - KissKiss Gloss #45 - Beige Caprice

This is the best beige-caramel gloss for me.Normally nudes wash me out terribly and i must be very careful when getting beiges-nudes-neutrals.But the Beige caprice is not exactly beige,but caramel with toons of shimmers and extreme glossy effect.You can sheer it up for a more beige colour or add two coats for a tanned caramel pout.Very sexy,very classy,great violet smell and good staying power.Oh,kisskiss lipglosses are the only ones that don,t dry my lips out,they keep them soft and hydrated all day long!
Moisturizers -Sisley - Confort Extreme Night Cream
scarlett1975 1/1/2006 12:58:00 PM
The most moisturizing and healing night cream ever! I usually use Restorative cream and it works very good in spring and summer,but during the winter months or anytime i have very stressed and dry skin,i use this,wich is the only one that could heal my skin when i used a wrong aha treatment(my face was red and peeled,it burned like hell and nothing could relieve it,except Sisley Confort extreme). This is a basic for me.Since i use Sisley creams i save money!.It,s not a joke!.My neverending search for the perfect skin regime has finished,no more money wasted in useless products,specially those from Lancome,YSL and Estee Lauder,the worst brands ever in skincare IMO.Now i know exactly what is working for me,i always buy the same creams,never switch to other brands because everytime i do i regret it and come back to Sisley.
I bought this some days ago on Ebay and i,m dying to try it.It looks great on pictures!Will update
Gorgeous colour!!!!!!!!!! I got this some days ago and i,m totally sold.I was reading such great reviews here i had to get it.The first time i saw it i must admit i was afraid,i even thought of not buying it,but finally dared to and i,m so pleased!.Shade has been very well described:dark purple with reddish undertone(sort of MAC Beauty marked colour,but a bit lighter),it goes on sheer,a mix between plum-wine with the loveliest shimmers.It looks totally sexy and elegant,even for work.You can build the colour for a more dramatic effect.I find this extremely wearable,much more than Beach plum(too brownish on me) or even my dear Exquisite,wich is pinker,more on the fuchsia side(but still adorable).A new staple!
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!I tested this one twice at different counters and i MUST SAY I,M IN LOVE WITH IT.For the pics i saw i thought it wouldn,t be a must have,but once on my lips it looks like pink-berry-violetish.Don,t have the words to explain.It,s a great berry pink,not too berry or plummish,not too fuchsia.Just in between.No glitter or shimmer,just glossy and very well pigmented.Excellent staying power and leaves a nice stain when it fades.I,m going to go buy one this week!! UPDATE:I GOT IT!!!!.IT,S SIMPLY GORGEOUS!
I love this one!.It,s kind of sheer orangish red,but believe,it shows sheer on lips,like a warm orangish peach with toons of tinny glitter.Scent is a little bit too sweet for my taste,but i got used to it,so not a problem indeed.I wish it would be more pigmented,just a little bit more.That,s why i took one lipstick of.Overall,great to wear all year around.
